With the festive season upon us it is timely to remind all suppliers about council policy on gifts. Councillors and council officers are not permitted to accept gifts, benefits or hospitality (token or otherwise) from persons or bodies who are suppliers to council. The council encourages positive business relationships based upon superior product and service delivery.
We are committed to ensuring the safety of our employees, contractors, volunteers, ratepayers and visitors. All potential contractors must agree to abide by the safety policies, procedures and guidelines which have been adopted by us.
Our employees are expected to work within these safety guidelines and we also expect our contractors and their employees to do the same.
It is a requirement that all contractors wishing to provide services to the Wodonga Council should be OHS pre-qualified. This is a process whereby all prospective contractors complete the OHS pre-qualification questionnaire for contractors which has been prepared to assist contractors to demonstrate their ability to manage occupational health and safety and have the appropriate insurance and work cover registration requirements.
Failure to have adequate OHS policies in place can make a quote or tender submission non-compliant, regardless of the quality of the rest of the submission. If you are in any doubt about a safety issue relating to a contract, please consult our procurement team on (02) 6022 9300. To read our procurement policy, please click here.
